If anyone saw The X-Factor last night they were probably thoroughly creeped out by this dude who claims to be one of her biggest fans. He says he’d do anything to impress his idol and is so overwhelmed by his undying love for her that he’s quite sure they’re related.
“I think she might be m sister. Do I look like her at all?” said Patrick Ford. “I just need a blond wig.”
sang butchered Britney’s song “Circus” and received a quick no from all the judges — including Britney who made the best grimace I’ve ever seen (above). Ford was so shocked by their rejection his reaction was a little worrisome and I was almost positive he was going to charge the stage, kidnap Britney and escape to a hidden location off the coast of South America.
Instead he just creepily asked to give her the flowers he stole and refused to do any on camera interviews because the embarrassment was too much to handle.
Watch it here:
Cirque du Soleil, the popular circus troupe that does shows in practically every hotel in Vegas, announced earlier today that it is creating a show around Michael Jackson’s music, reports E!Online.com.
The show will, undoubtedly, follow the same style as the widely popular The Beatles: Love and Viva Elvis.
They said the show will start off with an arena tour in late 2011 and will be followed by a permanent residency in Las Vegas in 2010 at an MGM Mirage Inc. property. A nightclub with the same theme is due to open around the same time.
“Having attended Cirque du Soleil performances with Michael, I know he was a huge fan,” said Jon Branca, co-executor of the King of Pop’s estate, in a statement.
Jackson’s mother, Katherine, added, “Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way.”
The estate and the circus troupe will each own 50 per cent of the project, and share the production and development costs evenly.
Wait, so you’re saying she doesn’t really sing at her shows? Well, that is shocking.
After a frenzy of negative reviews for her Circus tour, Britney Spears is speaking out over the lip-synch scandal that started in Australia following her first two shows there, according to rollingstone.com.
“I hear there is a lot of controversy in the media about my show,” a statement by Spears said yesterday. “Some reporters said they love it and some don’t. I came to Australia for my fans.”
The Australian press reported that concertgoers for Spears’ first two concerts in Perth began leaving the venue after only a few songs of Spears’ set, when it became evident that she was lip-synching. Spears has also been criticized for what the media has reported as a lack of engagement with the crowd. She only talked to the audience once, telling them how beautiful Australia was.
Miranda Tozier-Robbins, the woman arrested on Thursday after allegedly peeping in the windows of singer Britney Spears‘ California home has an excuse that states that she was merely attempting to make a paparazzi documentary.
According to celebuzz.com, Tozier-Robbins, a former American Idol hopeful who sang Spears’ “Everytime” during her audition, was wearing camouflage fatigues and carrying a backpack and a camera at the time of her alleged trespassing incident.
Britney Spears is bringing the excitement of the circus everywhere she goes. The 27-year-old popstar, who is currently on her Circus world tour, is donating $100,000 to the Miami Children’s Hospital’s Big Apple Circus Clown Care program.
Spears also visited with her fans at the hospital. She made a surprise, 30-minute visit with 40 sick children at the hospital on Saturday before her show at the American Airlines Arena. According to E! News, Spears posed for photos with the kids and signed autographs.
Opening up for the legendary Britney Spears is a big task for anyone or any group to handle, especially taking on the responsibility for the circus tour, which is set to be pure magic for both Britney’s career and audiences around the world. Yet, the Pussycat Dolls are an extraordinary group of women who have stepped up to the plate and are going on tour with Britney, promising to make this show a pure spectacle.
The pussycat Dolls are working non stop, joining Britney’s circus right after wrapping up their own Doll Domination tour.
Magician and actor Ed Alonzo will be joining Britney Spears’ “Circus” tour according to E! Online. It has been reported the illusionist will be performing a magic number with the singer on her tour.
“Right away she got into the boxes and into the magic contraptions to learn the stuff, and she’s so excited about this tour and all the elements that are in it,” said Alonzo to E! News.
“We’re going to be doing the classics of magic but a little high-tech,” he continued. “We’ll be doing a little dissection, transposition, a vanish, an appearance—and if I do a trick she doesn’t just hold the props, she’s actually getting inside the big boxes or I am slicing her up.”
Alonzo said the tricks are relatively easy but there are “some complicated things that she is doing that you would think a contortionist would have to do, or a trained magicians assistant.”
Adrien Gough and Henry Walter, members of a Canadian band who live in Halifax, wrote the music for the song “Mmm Papi” alongside Montreal’s Peter-John Kerr.
The song is on Britney Spears’ new album “Circus” released yesterday (December 2), coinciding with the pop singer’s 27th birthday.
The trio composed the music under their band name, Let’s Go to War, while one of the singer’s producers, Nicole Morier, wrote the lyrics. She selected the song out of the many tunes the trio sent her through Kobalt Music in Los Angeles.
Spears recently performed songs from “Circus” in New York and plans to complete a 26-city tour. Her first single off the new album (“Womanizer”) reached the N. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart in October.
The next single off her new album is none other than “Circus.” The up-tempo track was produced by Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco.
